Which course is right for me?
This is different for every student. It is best to talk with your counselor about what class or classes makes sense for you. It can be helpful to think about your SAT/ACT scores, as some schools offer credit for certain scores. Other things to consider are your future degree plans, looking at transfer credit for the institutions you might go to after graduation, and thinking about the other classes you are taking at the same time. If you plan to attend a Kansas public institution of higher education, use the Transfer Kansas portal to view how courses transfer across the state. If you plan to attend an out-of-state school or a private institution within the state of Kansas, it is your responsibility to contact the individual school to learn more about transfer options.
Important note about BIOL 100/102: BIOL 100/102 will be relevant and will serve as an appropriate general education requirement for most students, including pre-health majors such as pre-nursing, pre-physical therapy, etc. However, pre-med students and/or those wanting to pursue one of the undergraduate biological sciences degrees should, eventually, take the biological sciences major sequence of BIOL 150, 152, and 154, instead. The courses in this sequence are not currently offered as concurrent enrollment courses.
Who is eligible?
Students from the Lawrence Public School District must be an incoming junior or senior to enroll in concurrent enrollment courses. Students work with their counselors in their high schools to determine their eligibility for each course.
Each course has been approved as a Kansas Systemwide Transfer course, which means each will seamlessly transfer to other public 2-year and 4-year institutions of higher education across the state.
